Beyond Sancton Wood

All of our students leave SW having inspired, informed, encouraged to fulfil their ambitions and having been given the opportunity to develop their strengths.  We work closely with them in Y10 and Y11 to ensure that they are well informed about the next steps available to them and which 6th form setting they would be best suited to.

How we prepare students for their next steps

Each year we hold an A-Level transition event attended by all the local providers and our former students who have had experience at these settings.  Our pupils enjoy a high acceptance rate for first choice sixth forms.

We have a thorough Careers Programme running throughout Y10 and Y11.  Here, we help our students to know and understand themselves, covering a range of topics through a set guidance programme.  We also bring in guest speakers to talk about their career path and their line of work.  As a partner to Investin we  aim to give students an immersive experience of their dream career, here they have the opportunity to work alongside top professionals through a series of role-plays, seminars, simulations and networking sessions.

As a member of Dukes Education Group, we have access to a number of sister organisations each offering our students excellent opportunities.  Working from the shared Education Consultancy London office headquarters, they deliver high-quality education and admissions guidance for students aged 14+, helping them to progress towards leading universities worldwide.

These include: Oxbridge Applications, US Applications, A-List Education and  Dukes Medical Applications.
